Glenaeon is a highly nurturing and caring school where every child is given the opportunity to reach their full learning potential. Learning support is available to Glenaeon students that may be facing learning challenges in class or just need a bit of extra help with reading, or managing study. Meet Angela Sutton, our Head of Learning support for students in K-12. It is Angela who will make assessments, and if needed, develop a Learning Support Plan and work closely with the Student, Teachers and Parents to get the best outcomes for all.
What is your new role at Glenaeon?
I am the Head of Learning Support (K-12) and High School Learning Support Teacher based at Middle Cove Campus.
What experience do you bring to Glenaeon?
For the past 18 years, I’ve been working in Special Education as a Teacher, Assistant Principal, Advisor and Director in the USA, Australia, Bhutan and Indonesia. My experience is with students from preschool to university, therefore, working in the K-12 setting at Glenaeon is a perfect fit for me. I have previously enjoyed working with students with autism and a variety of learning difficulties and needs.
What are your interests?
My interests are in traveling, trekking, exercising and cooking. Pre-COVID, we enjoyed a several month holiday around Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam before landing in Indonesia. I love experiencing different cultures, traditions and foods. I enjoy playing tennis and table tennis, as well as jogging. As a family, we enjoy cooking and baking together.
What are you most excited about for the year ahead?
I’m most excited about getting to know the students and working alongside the staff at Castlecrag and Middle Cove campus. I look forward to watching the students grow as the year progresses.
